I currently have a Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3, 2.19 GHz processor, 448 MB of RAM, and around 85 GB of Hard Drive Memory. It is overall slow and I get a lot of unresponsiveness and low virtual memory messages. Playing certain games is near impossible at times, and I could not even download a trial for WoW because I did not have the minimum RAM requirements. I have been looking at computers and I have my eye on a new eMachine with Windows 7 and over 6 GB of RAM. I know a good bit about computers, but more knowledge wouldn't hurt.

Please don't buy the eMachine.
Just because it has six gigabytes of memory doesn't mean it's going to play games.
Also, from past experience with eMachines systems, it'll be totally dead in three years time.
